Mayhem – Freezing Moon lyrics

Everything Here Is So Cold
Everything Here Is So Dark
I Remember It As From A Dream
In The Corner Of This Time
Diabolic Shapes Float By
Out From The Dark
I Remember It Was Here I Died
By Following The Freezing Moon
It's Night Again, Night You Beautiful
I Please My Hunger, On Living Humans
Night Of Hunger Follow It's Call
Follow The Freezing Moon
Darkness Is Growing, Eternity Opens
The Cememtary Lights Up Again
As In Ancient Times
Fallen Souls Die Behind My Steps
By Following The Freezing Moon

    It was Dead's *the old lead singer* way of dealing with a near death experience as that he had as a child. After they found him and rushed him to the hospital he was technically deceased but they were able to revive him. He soon after the incident became obsessed with death and got increasing depressed. He also talked about the vision of light and many other things that he saw during his nde.

    It feels like it was torturous for him to be here. He was a soul who came here to bring us something, and he did what he came here to do. When I think of the freezing moon, I think of a beautiful light surrounded by darkness. It seems that's how he was, a beautiful brilliant light of a soul shrouded and engulfed in total darkness. Also, he apparently did talk about the light (the big light) which he saw when he died. The light is hypnotic and it had a magnetic effect on him. From what I've heard, ever since he first saw it he wanted to go back there.

    Well I've listened to this song since it came out, and i hung out around Helvette and Bergen, Norway during the time of this songs inception (1990-1994). I've found that it might be about falling in a lake when he (Per Yngve Ohlin, AKA "Dead") was a kid, and trying desperately to swim up to the hole in the ice. the illusion of the moonlight shining through the hole in the ice, aka the FREEZING MOON. it could also be a reference to the fact that he was pronounced clinically dead (lol he took the name "Dead") after getting the fuck beaten out of him in grade-school by some douche-bags because they ruptured his spleen. Some speculate that he suffered from something called "Coutaurd's Delusion" in which he literally thought he was a walking corpse on a day to day basis. A sad, but darkly epic rise to his position as lead singer of the darkest metal band ever conceived; Mayhem.

    RIP, well rest however you want Dead.
